Leipzick, May 2, 1731.

To the AUTHOR of the Present State of the Republick of Letters.

A

General Prejudice conceiv'd against the German Language, and confequently Writers, as well by your Nation, as the French, without deigning to examine upon what Grounds it is founded, is, I prefume, the Reason why fo few Tranflations out of it appear in the English Tongue, and that fo little mention has been made of the Productions of our Nation in your Journal; and not, I hope, a want of Authors worthy of that Regard.
